Just three months in and 2020 has already been a whirlwind.

While the world locks down, we're faced with a lot of uncertainty about the future. How long will this last? Will our loved ones be safe? Am I going to be able to survive financially?

On this episode, we sat down (remotely, of course) to dig into how the coronavirus will affect our everyday lives, and what we can do to set ourselves and our community up for the long haul. These are unprecedented times, and we're all figuring it out together.

This conversation was recorded prior to the announcement of Australia's 30 March $130 billion stimulus package. Follow along with all of our coronavirus coverage here and learn how you can get financial help during the coronavirus pandemic here.
